Foreign Soil


The Michigan basketball team has safely landed in Belgium and that means we get a handful of pictures of the team sleeping in their Beats by Dre headphones.

Michigan practices today and will play their first game tomorrow morning/afternoon. For reference, here’s the full game schedule for the next week with links to official team site rosters:

  • Aug 22nd – Ghent (4 p.m local – 10 a.m. eastern)  – Roster
  • Aug 23rd – Charleroi (7 p.m. local – 1 p.m. eastern)  – Roster
  • Aug 25th – Oostande (8:30 p.m local – 2:30 p.m. eastern) – Roster
  • Aug 26th – Mons (7 p.m local – 1 p.m. eastern) – Roster

Beilein mentioned that many of the USA players might not be in Belgium yet, so take that into account when examining the rosters. But seriously, how could you not notice Courtney Sims (!) and Chris Hill on the Charleroi roster.

It’s unclear what type of coverage we’ll get but right now one of your best bet is following along on twitter. The Michigan coaching staff (Beilein, Alexander, Meyer, and Jordan) are on twitter. There is an official Michigan basketball twitter page as well as a number of players to follow (Smotrycz, Christian,and Novak). There’s also MGoBlue.com and the newly launched JohnBeilein.com.

This post will serve as an open thread of sorts for the Sunday game and we’ll see how that goes.
